Welcome to Eight Sentence Sunday. I'm so very happy you stopped by.
As you know last week Kaylob had something to tell Beth Ann and he was nervous and sad. He loves Beth Ann but feels he has to do this. Something shook him to his knees and he feels he has no choice. Kaylob always wants to do the right thing. But was this really the right thing?
I’m doing a second tour.”
She leaned back to look at him, shock flooding her senses-- this could not be true.
“What do you mean by a second tour? I told you I’d go anyplace they stationed you. I have my passport and—”
“I’m going back to Vietnam.”
All she could do was stare at him, surely she hadn’t heard him right. He was going back to the war? Why would he do that? They couldn’t make him. The military couldn’t force him to fight in that war again! Just the thought made her nauseated.
The storm outside swelled in waves, matching her mood.
Next week find out just how upset she is. I don't think Kaylob was prepared or understood how much this would affect her.
